Ping Identity Corporation, a mid-sized identity solutions company, is
currently looking for 2 contractors (3+ months w/option to hire at
contract end) to assist in developing and extending our internal
corporate application platform.  This internally-developed platform
drives most aspects of our company, from sales leads to support to
applications that assist in day-to-day operations.  We are currently our
platform entirely to Ruby on Rails (~60% complete at this stage) and
need additional, dedicated individuals to help us round out the system
and drive future development.

Applicants must have at least 2 years of prior web application
development experience with demonstratable Ruby on Rails skills.
Applicants must also have experience with relational database systems
(MySQL or PostgreSQL preferred).  A strong commitment to web standards
and quality, test-driven code is a huge plus as is the ability to design
intuitive applications.

Our development environment is Mac OS X (workstation provided) and we
deploy on a cluster of servers running Debian GNU/Linux.

We are looking to hire immediately and will consider remote contractors.

If you are interested in applying for one of the available positions,
feel free to send me an e-mail or give me a call at 303-468-2866.

Thanks!

Justin,

I would certainly be interested in working with your company on a
telecommuting basis.

My name is D'Andrew "Dave" Thompson. I live in Seattle and have been
working in web development and consultation for small to medium
businesses for almost 6 years. I have worked with a number of
different types of businesses, most recently an insurance company,
McLeod Insurance, www.mcleodins.com.

I am well experience in XHTML, CSS1&2, JS/AJAX, J2EE, PHP, and most
recently Ruby on Rails, since 0.13. My background is in Linux/Unix.
Currently I am using Mac OS X, which is the platform I have used for
the development of all projects listed in this email. I typically use
Eclipse 3.1 w/ RadRails plugin (a carry over from my java days), but
am also comfortable using textmate.

Recently I have headed up an open source project which I will be
releasing next month called CampaignOS. Here is the project page:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/campaignos

Our original design concept can be seen at
http://www.policorp.com/demo/. However, recently we have decided to
scale-down the user interface and general theme for our first release,
opting for simplicity over feature-set.

I am waiting to release the project. We are waiting for an XML RFC
from the Public Disclosure Commission of Washington State (which will
allow our product to file financial reports in real time with the
state governing board).

I am also sponsoring and the main developer for the rCalendar project.
This project will provide a Rails engine with a fully iCal compliant
calendering system. Feel free to review the project trac at
https://opensvn.csie.org/traccgi/rcalendar/trac.cgi/wiki

Thank you for your interest.

(PS - I would call you, but I'm finishing a contract out on a Navy
Base with no cell reception. I should be available via phone tomorrow.
For now email is fine.)

Dave
